10th Grade Boys Gilchrist Weekend

Gilchrist-Club-LogoThrough the generosity of a dear friend of the school, the tenth grade boys spend a weekend in the fall at the Gilchrist Club, a premier hunting, shooting, and recreational facility about thirty minutes west of Gainesville. It is an exclusive, private club situated on 27,000 acres of undisturbed natural woodlands, and it features a carefully managed wildlife program suitable for hunting expeditions.

Under the supervision of Gilchrist’s gun safety instructors, the boys have the opportunity to do skeet shooting, sporting clays, and target practice on the pistol and rifle range. Depending on the schedule and interest, fishing is also a possibility.
